Have you ever thought about becoming a “liturgical minister”? What is a liturgical minister? The Ushers who greet you at the door are liturgical ministers. So are Lectors, those who proclaim the first and second readings at each Mass. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion help the clergy distribute the Body of Christ to the faithful when it is time for communion. All of these people are liturgical ministers.
At each Mass, we need at least four Ushers, two Lectors, and two Extraordinary Ministers. Considering we have five Masses each weekend at Saint Bridget, that means we need a total of 40 liturgical ministers every single weekend. And we are in need of more people!
If you would like to become an Usher, Lector or Extraordinary Minister, we will be hosting a training session called “Ministry Matters” on Monday night, February 6 from 7:00 until 8:30, when you can learn how to do just that. It is an outstanding way to deepen your faith, immerse yourself in the celebration of the Mass, make new friends, and so much more.
If you are interested, please contact Jackie Dwyer at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or to obtain more information. Saint Bridget needs your help, and we truly appreciate your consideration!
